“Sorry, I couldn’t help myself,” White wrote in the caption for this video. “I had to get this up early.”
UFC 251 will be headlined by a welterweight title fight between dominating champion Kamaru Usman and ferocious challenger Jorge Masvidal. Usman was originally expected to defend his title agains Gilbert Burns on Fight Island, but Masvidal was called to step in on six days’ notice when Burns tested positive for COVID-19.
In the UFC 251 co-main event, UFC featherweight champion Alexander Volkanovski will look to defend his belt against the very man he won it from, divisional great Max Holloway.
The card will also feature a fight for the bantamweight title left vacant by the retired Henry Cejudo, as Russian destroyer Petr Yan collides with Brazilian legend Jose Aldo.
Other highlights of the card include appearances from former champions, popular stars and rising contenders like Rose Namajunas, Jessica Andrade, Paige VanZant, Amanda Ribas, Volkan Oezdemir, and Jiri Prochazka.
